Fellowship of Believers

CHANGES TO OUR ONLINE MESSAGES

As pandemic related restrictions are lifted and more people have begun to return to in-person services, we have made changes to our weekly online messages.

To stay up to date on the message that was given in person at the campus, you can listen online below or subscribe to our podcast wherever you listen to podcasts.

If you would prefer to see a video message, we will post one from a member of our cross-campus teaching team each Sunday morning here. It will be available on-demand so you can watch it whenever you want. While each week's video message will be from the current series, the topic may be different than that of the in-person message.

Fellowship: Circling up to follow Jesus together

Prayer: Connecting with God

Acts 2:43
A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity— all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
